The MCCLOSKEY Family


This column is part of a feature series which focuses on a different Centre County family.

This column's focus is on MCCLOSKEY. An effort has been made to identify all persons carrying that name in the 1890 U.S. Census, using the Centre County business directory which was formed from a preliminary review of that census before the larger set of 1890 U.S. Census records was destroyed by fire. (Sadly, the postal directory does not typically provide the ages of females, but it's the best record we've got).

One book in the Pennsylvania Room of the Centre County Library in Bellefonte apparently deals with the McCloskey family. It is Jerry R. McCloskey's Felix and Rachel (Evans) McCloskey's Legacy.

And, now, your ancestors' MCCLOSKEY neighbors in 1890:
